Ballyhass Lakes

Ballyhass Lakes angling and activity centre was developed on the site of an unused quarry and has proved to be a huge success

Using the natural assets of the area and a feasibility study undertaken with LEADER II support, Ballyhass Lakes and its angling and activity centre at its 36 acre base in Ballyhass was developed on the site of an unused quarry and has proved to be a huge success. The lakes are a perfect environment for rainbow trout fishing and attracts many rod angling days per year. Eleven, four star self-catering holiday homes are on site in Ballyhass and its activity centre has a range of activities.

  • Rock Climbing
  • Abseiling
  • Kayaking
  • Raft Building
  • Archery
  • Canoeing
  • Wakeboarding
  • Leap of Faith
  • Gladiator Course
  • 160m Zipline
  • Hiking
  • Trout Fishing

With financial support from IRD Duhallow’s LEADER programme, Ballyhass Lakes has built a climbing wall and developed indoor floor activities.
Ballyhass Lakes has recently introduced the world’s most unique and fast growing sport, wakeboarding, to its long list of activities that it provides. Wakeboarding uses an overhead cable to pull you along the surface of the water and is a fun filled activity for all ages.

Ballyhass Lakes holiday village is an ideal location for anglers to come on holidays as it boasts all-year-round angling on its two lakes. The activity centre along with its four star accommodation base provides the perfect setting for a relaxing and enjoyable experience for all.
